    stage 2 clutch grinding

    My stock clutch just wasn't able to handle the torque of my exhaust and catless dp... so i ordered a stage2 clutch and flywheel and had it installed. The only problem is when i begin slowing down i hear/feel a grinding. I'm assuming its the flywheel and new clutch being worked in but i' not positive. HELP!!!! I dont want to hurt my bugeyed baby!!!!

    What u mean can't handle the torque...? Maybe it was on its way out and those mods helped to speed up the process... The oem clutch is more than enough to handle a stage 2 bugeye. Why stage 2? Guess u didn't do ur homework on that one.

    Are you sure you didn't just go out and beat it up? It could've been installed wrong or off and was the flywheel machined to the right specs?

    Was it a light weight flywheel that you put in?
    If it was - that's what's causing the grind noise on decel.
